Turned out to be a man of his word, that is corrupt as fuck, which is just what one needs when it to comes to an insurance scam, particularly house insurance. I showed him around the house, ” You need to splash some water there, loosen a tile or two, put in a nice little coffee stain here” he said. Like anything in life you never know whether a plan will come to fruition or not. He mentioned a figure, a figure I found very pleasing, 12 grand. He wanted 10 percent as his cut. To make a long story short I got the whole fucking bathroom renovated. The only drawback being dealing with builders, a long four days, one has to keep a close eye on builders, but at the end of the day when all is said and done if you get a luxurious bathroom complete with a rain-shower, luxurious tiles etc it is well worth the inconvenience. Never underestimate the power of corruption in this world, the insurance industry being particularly ruthless it feels great to get a new bathroom on them! Fairplay to the assessor, a gentleman in every sense of the word.
